Chapter 855: Are You Number Fifteen?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Speaking to here, Jun Mo Xie actually still needed to thank the three Holy Lands!
If not for the three Holy Lands’ Saint level experts teaming up to injure the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master, and if not for the fact that there were so many experts in this Chrysanthemum City, preventing this fellow from acting rashly… How would the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master possibly sit here and endure his anger?
If not for this fortuitous encounter this time, who knew how long it would take for Jun Mo Xie to comprehend this realm…
True Self, Origin, did not mean living as one pleased, without care for consequences. Because no matter how unrestrained one was, there was always one rule to adhere to: they must have absolute power! Only when a person had absolute power could they act as they pleased, without a care for others’ opinion.
But imagine a newborn infant who’d just come into the world. Even if a magnificent and powerful tiger loomed over it, threatening to eat it, the infant would still cry and create a tantrum if it was hungry and wanted milk…
It wouldn’t feel any fear!
This was the truest, natural default that everyone was born with! If these natural reactions were amplified many times and applied to any areas, when every area of a person was changed to that natural level of instinct and behaviour, one would have truly reverted to nature!
Jun Mo Xie spat out a long breath…
So the truth is actually like that!
No wonder so few people in this world succeeded. So the main reason is this.
All the people who practice martial arts in this world, pursued either increased strength of their physical bodies or spirit powers cultivation which could contend against great strength. Yet, they neglected the existence of their “self”, which is the so-called True Self, or the Origin. But even of one reached the apex of strength, or if their cultivation reached the very limits, what then?
Even the greatest of strengths had a limit. Apart from needing to be complemented with an equivalent level of spirit power, it required a sufficiently stable body to hold this great strength.
And this body was unquestionably the self!
As Buddhism often said, the physical body, was the treasured cage that one must break free of to transcend beyond!
Most people would deviate further and further from this path in their pursuit for more power, until finally, they’ve lost themselves, losing the original meaning of their True Self!
Such people were no longer using and controlling power. Rather, their bodies were being used by the power, turning them into nothing but vessels with only the mindless craze to seek more power!
This was the kind of dangerous development always depicted in fantasy stories. People who pursued only power would eventually be consumed by power!
That way, the order had been completely reversed. It would be a wonder if they could achieve anything! These people were already at the verge of suffering from cultivation deviation; wanting to ascend to an even higher realm? That was simply a fool’s dream.
Now that Jun Mo Xie had a rare flash of comprehension, he was naturally reluctant to let it go as he meditated seriously. If he began progressing with this state from the start, what would be the results?
Without a doubt, the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master and the other Nine Nether Young Masters all trained like this from the beginning, which was why the results were so good. But there was also one major drawback: the endless magnification of their self confidence!
Although it was good to be confident in oneself, but this kind of over confidence would instead cause a person to whether intentionally or not, become wild and uncontrollable! Because all of them felt that in this world, there was nothing that they couldn’t do; they were the strongest and were invincible. Everyone should rightfully be bowing under their feet, worshipping them, and serving them!
That way, this problem was actually incredibly severe!
After all, not everyone could reach the level of the Nine Nether First Young Master. A peerless character like him was something that only appeared once in history thus far.
Although the Nine Nether Young Masters after the Nine Nether First Young Master were also shockingly amazing characters, but their strengths were still far from reaching the terrifying levels that the First Young Master had achieved back then. When a person’s confidence and arrogance were not backed up by equal levels of strength, the results would only be a tragedy!
This was also the reason why among all the Nine Nether Young Masters, only the Nine Nether First Young Master had achieved such glorious results. The other Nine Nether Young Masters were all buried in history! Actually, even the Nine Nether First Young Master had met certain bumpers in his journey as well. Wasn’t he eventually also defeated at the hands of another peerless expert? Compared to the other Nine Nether Young Masters, perhaps his luck was only a bit better to not have been attacked by the entire combined force of Xuan Xuan Continent’s experts like the other Nine Nether Young Masters.
Young Master Jun had never lacked in self confidence as well. However, he was not so overly confident like the Nine Nether Young Masters!
Confidence was a good thing, but excessive confidence was actually a detriment! How should one find a balance between confidence and over confidence? To have enough so as not to inhibit one’s own progression, and at the same time be able to face trials and challenges while believing in oneself, recognizing one’s position and drawing strength from within to continue growing?
When Jun Mo Xie was deep in thought, the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master was looking at him with interest.
The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master who had been angered to the point of almost vomiting blood a moment ago had finally managed to recover. He was a clever person, so how could his judgement be weak? Earlier, it was because he’d been too infuriated by Jun Mo Xie’s words that he rambled in that manner. Now that Jun Mo Xie had suddenly shut his mouth, the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master also slowly regained his clarity. As he looked carefully, he discovered that not only had this brat stopped talking, his expression had become deep and profound, as if he’d changed into a different person…
This brat was actually in the midst of a comprehension!
The kid had just finished running his mouth and angered him till he almost died, and in the blink of an eye, he’d entered a meditative state!
This was so inconceivable that no one would accept it…
The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master was completely speechless!
This fellow, could he get any more shameless? The state of comprehension… was something could only be encountered, not sought! Even this Young Master did not dare to say that I can enter a state of comprehension whenever I want to. What kind of important matter is this? To think that this kid could sit there drinking and spewing nonsense while committing a despicable act like dining without paying… and subsequently gain an inspiration in the middle of it!
Wait a moment…
This kind of profound aura, it seems rather familiar… Where have I encountered it before… the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master scrunched his brows deeply and thought. This… how could it be possible?! Isn’t this the True Self Spirit breakthrough of our Nine Nethers tribe? How could this appear in a place like this Xuan Xuan Continent so stained by mortal coils?!
Thinking to here, the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master’s eyes widened with shock!
Could it be that this brat was also someone from the Nine Nethers tribe? If that were the case, it would be logical for him to recognize me. But… If he was able to recognize me, how come I wasn’t able to recognize him? Also… why is his spirit aura so strange? Although it is quite similar to our tribe’s mental cultivation techniques, but there are still many subtle differences. I guess it can be considered as having the same result achieved by different methods.
Also… he hasn’t died yet, and he was still here, preparing to fight another large battle. If this kid is truly from the Nine Nethers tribe, how did he come out? And how did he completely not feel anything? Could it be that the Nine Nethers juniors’ strength have really improved so far that it’s beyond my understanding?
After a long time, Jun Mo Xie’s fingers moved, and he finally awoke from that miraculous state. He immediately stretched and yawned, rubbing his eyes as he sighed in a shameless manner. “Ah, that was a truly comfortable sleep, I haven’t had such a great sleep in a long time…”
He treated the state of comprehension as sleeping? The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master who was still in deep thought instantly had dark lines covering his entire forehead. The anger that he’d suppressed just a moment ago with great difficulty also rose upwards again!
“Brat, are you… Little Fifteen?” The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master asked with an icy expression.
“Little Fifteen?” Jun Mo Xie was stumped for a moment. “What Little Fifteen?”
“Cut the crap! This Young Master has already seen through your identity. How did you come over here?” The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master slapped the table and asked angrily. “Don’t you know how to respect your elders? Even if you don’t care about the people of this world, you should at least be respectful to me? I really wonder how the elders of your family taught you!”
“Hey man, I really don’t understand what you’re talking about. Are you even speaking Chinese?” Jun Mo Xie frowned with annoyance as he asked. However, his mind instantly turned clear. So this fellow thinks that I’m the Nine Nether Fifteenth Young Master… Seen through my identity? F*ck, I wonder what’s going on in his head. Besides, even if this Young Master wanted to name myself after a number, I would still be the Nine Firmament First Old Master. Why should I be numbered behind you?
“Brat, look at this.” Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master stared at him and stretched out his right arm, placing his five long fingers flat against the table’s surface. Suddenly, the color of his fingers slowly changed, turning into dark shadows. A layer of milky white mist hung around the shadows.
The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master smiled lightly, and his fingers returned to their original form in an instant. This demonstration was extremely quick, and apart from the two of them, nobody else even saw anything strange.
This unique transformation was a special technique that only belonged to the Nine Nethers Tribe!
This technique was actually nothing amazing, and it was only a secret skill that they used as a concealment technique in the Nine Nethers realm. But in this world, it basically did not have much use. However, it had become the unique method used to identify each other…
Except the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master’s efforts today were no different than playing a show to a blind man. It was completely useless!
“Have you seen it clearly? Still want to continue acting in front of me?” The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master smiled cynically as he looked at Jun Mo Xie. He leaned casually against his chair and looked at him with a gaze as if he were evaluating a junior. “So, how did you come here? Hurry up and say it!”
“En, I saw it very clearly! However, I still don’t know what to say to you! Just now, I said that you were autistic so as to help you get off the stage. But now, I truly wonder…” Jun Mo Xie shook his head. “You… aren’t really autistic, right?”
“Damn brat!” The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master stretched out his hand and grabbed Jun Mo Xie’s wrist; Jun Mo Xie did not dodge, allowing himself to be grabbed. Internally, his guts were already getting knotted up from laughing…
